I will never forget that day. I was three weeks out of my surgery that took place on January 7th 2020. Jaw surgery to correct my bite. God, it was the worst thing in history for me at the time. I was forced to have my mouth wired shut for three weeks and had to stay on a liquid diet for that entire span. Soup went from delicious to, “Oh my God. If I eat this again, i’m going to throw up.” I couldn’t brush my teeth. I couldn’t sleep properly. My face still had a bit of swelling. On the 25th, my surgeon said that my wires could come off. Finally, it’s over! For celebration, me and my mother planned to celebrate the next day by having brunch at our favorite spot in Warren.
History of the Super Bowl
The Super Bowl™ is a territory acquisition athletic contest played on a fixed agrarian grid using, as a token, an inflated porcine prolate spheroid. It is the most important holiday of the year in America some will say. While it is ostensibly a secular holiday, others argue that it is truly a religious holiday. And there are several reasons why. It has:
Documentary Review: 'ESPN 30 for 30: Al Davis vs the NFL'
ESPN 30 for 30 has become a haven for documentary filmmakers eager to find unique ways to tell familiar stories. The documentary format can tend to be a very homogenous artform, always very similar and familiar in structure and presentation. Thus a series such as 30 for 30 can feel a little rote after a while. To change that, documentary filmmakers need to get creative and find little ways to set themselves apart from the rest.

The Underlying Issue with NBA Fans' Basketball Knowledge
During the postgame press conference of a Friday night matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers on January 9, 2021, Warriors forward Draymond Green was asked this question, “Do you wish defense was seen, like, in a sexier way? That like, being in good position, or staying vertical...that’s just as good as, potentially, hitting a splashy 3, but it’s the 3 that ends up on the highlight reel?”
The State of the UFC's Lightweight Title Picture
The 155-pound weight division in the UFC has been described as a murderers' row, and there is no better way to put it. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the top of the mountain though, where it is pretty cloudy at the moment.
So College Football...what's next?
With the Big Ten & Pac-12 cancelling Fall Sports and my Sooners having 9 New Positive Tests Yesterday the future of the 2020 College Football Season has never been more bleak. Trevor Lawrence, arguably the sports biggest current star, made the last ditch plea to the Power 5 before the Big Ten & Pac-12 voted with this post:
Athletics: When barefoot Bikila became a global sensation

Without fans, it just isn't the same
It seems like a lifetime ago that we were allowed to hop onto aeroplanes and fly to cities that would show us a little additional piece of the world puzzle. It was a regular occurrence for me to travel all over the United Kingdom and various other locations in Europe because of the work that I do. I work in the sport television industry and the last destination that I got to enjoy visiting was the magnificent Rome. Thus my flashback encompasses the sad truth that we cannot gather together at sporting events anymore, something I most certainly will never take for granted again.
The Flower That Will Flourish Forever | In Memoriam of Hana Kimura
It's been a day since I found out about the death of Hana Kimura. Some people may know her as the reality tv star from Terrace House but to me and many others, she was a talented pro-wrestler who had a big future ahead of her. She was undoubtedly one of my favorite wrestlers not just in Stardom, but in the whole pro-wrestling industry in general. The news of her passing and taking her own life has gutted me and made it difficult to breathe. Up until now, I am still in disbelief and cannot seem to wrap my head around the fact that she is gone.
